A couple years ago, I bought a new 6hp Predator engine at Harbor Freight. It's still in the box unopened. But since then, I had the framed stretched about 4". And now that I'm in the roller/assembly stage, I think there is plenty of space for a larger/higher hp engine. Still thinking about that 🤔

I see a creative heavy weight on the front or a wheelie bar on the back!

I'm game. Nice job so far. I remember when you started it. Good to someone able to get back to working on things. Hope I am not far behind.

Great work!!!! I put a 6.5 Predator  on my Suburban 400, after I took it a part & did some internal upgrades. I had to put some wheelie bars on after almost flipping it over backwards. Big engine is cool in these lil things, gas cap touching your nose not so much.:lol:

Be careful!  That predator will carry the front wheels easier than you think, especially in third gear!

Look at the weight difference between the iron Kohler and Tecchy engines in comparison to the aluminum replacements - herein lies the problem , about half the weight of the original engine ....

So, this project is now on the front burner and I am hoping to get more done to it in the coming weeks. Stay tuned...

 

 

This is looking an awful lot like a Rat Rod build  that was on here some years ago. It had a blown engine and a high stick shift inspired by Daddy Roth. Oh yeah!

Yeah, I remember that one, too. But the other one was red and was jacked up high with a chrome front axle.
